Celebrate the 115th birthday of the New York City subway system at the New York Transit Museum’s Party on Wheels! This annual event is a festive family benefit featuring exclusive early morning access to the Museum, crafts and face-painting for kids, as well as rides on the Transit Museum’s vintage R-1/9 subway cars right from the Museum platform to Hoyt-Schermerhorn Station and back. This is the only time all year that any train in the Museum’s collection leaves the station for shuttle rides. Guests will get to sit in the conductor’s cab of a vintage train for photos, play with model trains, enjoy breakfast and  of course sing Happy Birthday to the subway and enjoy some birthday cake!

DATE: Sunday, May 5th 2019, 9:00AM-11:00AM
